Worship team leading is an important aspect of worship leading because you need to lead and shape your team to create the kind of worship you desire.
Worship Team Leading Creates the Worship You Want
Many people think that worship leading is about singing, but far more important than that is being able to inspire your team to greatness.
Leading your team involves many complex tasks, everything from keeping the peace among sometimes volatile and “precious” singers and musicians. It involves not only keeping things relaxed and not stressed, but it also should inspire them to greatness.
In this podcast we talk about how to not only lead your team but raise them to new heights in their craft. We explore what you can do and say to challenge them to improve in their worship, and we talk about how you can also inspire them to a tremendous loyalty to yourself and the church you serve.
Worship team leading is not only about solving problems or teaching them new songs. True leadership is that which inspires them to follow you, to try new things, to step out in faith and learn and grow in their skills and abilities. True leadership is what is required for your worship team to push on and reach new heights in their service for the Lord!
So settle back and learn worship team leading from two guys who have been doing it for longer than they care to let on! You will learn truths that will serve you well in any form of leadership, both in worship teams, across the church and also in and secular endeavour you pursue. The principles of leadership work as a constant, so learn all you can and seek the Lord on how and when you can apply these principles to your worship team.
Learn how to lead your team well, inspiring them to greatness in worship…
We are all after the “secret sauce”, so what is the secret source of worship leading power?
The Secret Source or Worship Leading Power
Many successful products have some kind of secret attached to them. KFC has their 11 herbs and spices, McDonalds has their Big Mac sauce. Many other products have something secret that they do not talk about, but which makes all the difference.
So today we ask the question, what is the secret something that makes the difference between nice music and mind-blowing worship?
We have all seen it before… some great musicians and singers, pretty good songs, but while it may be a great performance, you cannot sense worship leading power that draws you closer to God. Then again, you might have an average team of musicians and slightly dodgy singers, and suddenly the heavens open and you experience genuine, Holy Spirit inspired worship leading power.
This is not completely random! While I always advocate training hard and being the best singer or musician you can be, sheer ability is not the secret sauce!
Song choices, talent, being nice, even Bible study is not the secret source of worship leading power. No, there is something else, something more elusive perhaps, but tangible enough that many worship leaders discover and apply this sauce and get tasty results every time!
This podcast is a look behind the scenes at what really is the source of worship leading power in your ministry. It takes a frank and compelling look at the various methods we try to make our worship leading better. It also reveals what our team believes is the secret sauce, the thing which gives worship leading its true power and anointing.
So don’t miss this exciting podcast, and make sure that every time you lead you are touching lives and seeing people worship deeply. There is a secret source of worship leading power, and it is yours to explore…
Your worship leading is about leading the people into worship, but does your worship leading actually go anywhere?
So Where Does Your Worship Leading Lead Them?
OK, this is not a trick question it’s a genuine attempt to challenge you on where you are leading your congregation when you are the person directing the worship. Is worship a series of stop-start songs, unrelated and used as a punctuation between items in the service? Or are you able to take your people on a genuine and special journey from where they walking into the auditorium right through to the very presence of the Lord?
So where exactly are you leading your congregation when you are worship leading, and just as important, do you know where you are going yourself? How can your worship leading be effective when you have no idea where you are going? This podcast is an excellent and very challenging look at how you lead people in worship, where you want to go and ultimately, the important question, how do you actually get there?
As the team discusses, your worship leading is not just a matter of choosing a few songs and belting them out. When you lead worship, you should have a definite place in mind as to where the Lord wants you to lead your congregation. If you know where it is that the Lord is leading you that service, you can then set about finding the best and most effective way to get there.
So settle back and listen to today’s worship leader podcast, and start asking the relevant question, “Do I know where I am going when it comes to worship leading?” Then, when you have clarity as to where your worship leading is headed, you can set course for taking your precious people right into the throne room of God when they worship.
These important and life-changing questions are answered in this week’s worship leader podcast…
